If he can change them into an effective defensive team while grinding it out they have a punchers chance.

They have a second distinct advantage: Duncan. Duncan is not Perkins or Ibaka. He'll be the best post player Miami's ever opposed in the playoffs (sorry D12).

Miami hasn't faced D12 in the playoffs. In 2011 Orlando lost to the Hawks in the first round and Dwight was hurt last year.

I agree that inside is the way to beat Miami. The issue that Indy has is that Hibbert isn't a star, so he gets no calls and gets beaten up inside. Timmy will at least get calls, so Miami can't expect the league to neutralize the center for them. They're going to have to play against a legitimate center in the finals, minus a couple of games where Timmy "gets" into foul trouble.

It's all about D for SAS ... their offense will be fine ... I don't know why everybody is so much focused on O these days ...

Even a poor offensive like Indy got some good looks against Miami ... they stopped running the high PNR with Hill- Hibbert in Game 3 for some reasons but the fact Miami played a great offensive game was the reason they got routed .

The question mark imo for SAS is how well they can defend Lebron/Wade penetration ...
